Within NY State Section 5 Rochester Nordic Racing Athletes have won 22 Sectional Championships out of 26 that have been contested since 2009. Rochester Nordic Racing athletes also have been a mainstay qualifying for the Mid-Atlantic Junior National Team. Gavin Hess along with Grace Mattern have received U.S Ski Team All-American Honors finishing in the top 10 at Junior Nationals. In addition, Gavin Hess qualified to represent the U.S.A at World Junior Championships in Almaty Kazakhstan 2015. Rochester Nordic Racing athletes have continued to peruse athletic and academic excellence at the following universities. EISA- Middlebury, University of New Hampshire, Dartmouth, Harvard, Williams, Bowdoin, Bates, St. Lawrence, UMPI, Colby, St. Michaels, USCSA - Cornell, Clarkson, Castleton, University of Vermont, and Paul Smiths.

Prep Team:

Prep Team- Designed for J3-J1 athletes competing at the local level with little or no previous roller ski experience. The program will mirror that of the Comp Team in a developmentally appropriate setting. The goal of the Prep Team is to facilitate athlete’s transition to the Comp Team.

Devo Team:

Devo Team- Designed for J3-J1 athletes who have little to no prior roller skiing experience. The devo or development program provides a developmentally appropriate setting for beginner roller skiers to become conformable on roller skis, refine technique, and learn basic training theories and ideas, as well as providing a base of fitness to build upon in the future.

Cost: $450 for the summer program. Train for the entire summer for the cost of many week-long camps!

U14 Devo athletes. This is by invite only dictated by prior performance in Bill Koch Youth Ski League and recommended by BKL Coaches final approval by Jason Hettenbaugh. U14 athletes will join in on Wednesday’s practices. Cost for the U14 devo program is $150. U14 athletes interested in full program access may discuss options with Jason and Matt.
